The adidasOriginals x Pharrell collaboration is back with his new “Supershell” collection.
After the success of the Supercolor pack, this new collection is adding another unique spin to the much loved Superstar silhouette.
A collaboration within a collaboration, Pharrell has worked with a series of artists to create this pack and each of them have reworked the shell toe according to their style. Within this artist series there are 2 collections, the Artwork that features a print design and the Sculpted that features a 3D embossed toe.
OFFSPRING will be stocking the designs by Todd James, Mr. and Pharrell himself all designed on the all black or all white mono Superstar.
Todd James is a celebrated New York artist whose paintings and installations have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, including both the 2001 and 2015 Venice Biennales. His immediate and insistent works draw influence from Saturday morning cartoons, subway graffiti, American popular culture and world events. “Todd James is a guy who’s always marched to the beat of his own drum. He’s just always created these super interesting paintings and drawings. He brings you into his own world. Sometimes certain things have an effect on you that you can’t really put into words.”
Mr. is a Japanese contemporary artist based in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. He works in a wide range of media, including painting, sculpture, and video – though his works are all closely related in aesthetics, style, and theme. Rendered in the anime style, the girls in his paintings incorporate the unique Japanese concept of ‘moe’ to depict a new form of beauty and refracted sexuality of the contemporary age. In 2014, he set his art to music by directing the unique music video for Pharrell Williams’s It Girl. “Mr is a wizard. His mind and his work remind us all that there’s an inner child in all of us. It’s interesting because when other people try to paint the same things it can send off very different messages. But somehow, Mr. is a master of depicting innocence, and I love that about his work. Mr., which really means master.”
The collection will be available online and in-store from the 7th August 2015. There will be events on the weekend of launch in our OFFSPRING Camden, Commercial St. and Selfridges London stores, follow @offspringhq for updates.
The super hyped adidas Originals “Island Series” is back for AW15 with new iconic style releases, featuring the “Jamaica”, “Trinidad & Tobago” and “Cancun” models. After the much loved SS15 instalment, we are pretty excited for the new additions to drop soon.
Originally released in the 1980’s the “Island Series” pack is influenced by islands around the world and takes into consideration the colours and culture that surrounds these tropical countries.
The “Jamaica” model is displayed with a bright yellow suede upper and black Three stripes, the “Trinidad & Tobago” features a bright orange suede upper with black Three stripes and finally the “Cancun” is offered in a light beige suede with dark brown Three stripes.
Following the success of previous collaborations, we have teamed up with premium lifestyle brand Timberland® to create a new collection for Spring/Summer 2015, re-mastering the classic boat shoe in three new leather and print combinations.
Known as the 30003, the hand-crafted and rugged premium boat shoe has earned iconic status in the Timberland® collection since its launch in 1979. This limited edition OFFSPRING update combines the classic Timberland® silhouette and craftsmanship with a fresh design.
The three pairs pop in high-summer colours, the first featuring turquoise leather with metal eyelets, stamped in a tortoiseshell print. The second in red with cork printed hardwear, while the third combines a trio of nubuck leather in classic Timberland® yellow, ruby red and sky blue. Each sit on a rugged white rubber outsole.

SAUCONY ORIGINALSintroduce us to two versions of the SHADOW 5000 that are perfect for the trainer enthusiast who likes berries or who just appreciates a good looking colourway The pairs inspired by blueberries are, unsurprisingly, predominantly blue with pops of turquoise on the logo and lining to add extra hits of colour. The blackberry pair go for purple as the main colour, with hits of grey used on the logo and heel. Both versions use black to contrast and tone down the bright uppers, with crisp white midsoles finishing off the look. Both colourways are perfect for the spring and we think they’d make a welcome addition to any wardrobe.
The SAUCONY ORIGINALS SHADOW 5000 FRESH PICKED PACK is coming soon and will only be available in Offspring Selfridges London and Offspring Shoreditch.
The iconic Superstar 80’s silhouette has embraced it’s history with the “Deluxe” pack, an adidas Originals release of some classic Superstar colourways that pay homage to the trainer’s original roots.
Constructed in a fresh, luxury off-white leather, the ever-popular shoe is enhanced with assorted three stripe branding that decorates the side panel.
The inspired launch is finished off with signature details such as the perforated side panel, gold foil blocked tongue branding, complementary trefoil branded heel tabs and the unmistakable rubber shell toe.
The adidas Originals Superstar “Deluxe” pack will hit stores and online soon in 4 colourways.
It has been over 20 years since Tinker Hatfield created the NikeAir Max 93 and this retro style is back with the “OG” pack, sporting the original “Citrus” and ” Menthol” colourways.
Keeping true to the original design, the Air Max 93 features a white leather and mesh upper with the classic bright 90’s colours on selected panels. With a neoprene sock like fit, reminiscent of the Huarache and Mowabb, the Air Max 93 was the first to feature a blow moulded cushioned sole with all around visible Air Unit, dubbed the ‘bubble’.
Coming soon to all Offspring stores and online here.
One of the most popular Jordan models, the Air Jordan III is back with a fresh colourway for 2014.
